Jewellery, keys, a laptop and iPad were stolen in a burglary in Haverhill, police have reported.

The break-in happened between 8.10am and 4.30pm on Friday, December 1 at a home in Ruffles Road.

An offender or offenders smashed the glass of the rear patio door and entered the house, before making an untidy search. An Acer laptop and bag, iPad Air, keys and jewellery were all taken.
